Default Killing flash on a short barreled ak

I'm setting up my new draco and I'm looking to remove as much flash as possible I would like to be able to shoot in low light as well as possible

So has anyone had luck doing this? With what suppressor? Right now I'm thinking about getting the Krebs 4 prong has anyone tried it out?

Thanks guys

Yep. Bulgaria style 4 piece is what you want.

But 90 is doable especially since the Krebs is only 20 less

Akou did a video were they found that the Krebs worked just as well but a lot more people seem to prefer the cone I'm sure there is a reason so now I'm leaning that way now

Have you guys noticed a boosting affect from the 4 peice?

The 4-piece for sure is where my vote is.
And by it's design it will "boost" a little bit, but that is not it's intended purpose, so I wouldn't install it expecting it to act like a 74 booster.

Short barrels do that. Not a low light weapon of choice.
The extension of the 4 piece and the internal cone will help the flash somewhat.

western union Strela in Ukraine or check out legion to see if they have any in stock. Better and cheaper than the Bulgarian or a clone IMHO, i have 2 one on 74 and one on a 47, can shoot them at 2 in the morning and no one would know. Reduces a little sound also.

Yeah I'm not looking for a boosting affect but I wouldn't mind it if it's Isn't excessive

Thanks for the video that's pretty damn convincing

I will have to consider the Stella it's online for 800 uah witch turns out to be 30 bucks! If that will work as well that would be a big savings thanks for telling me I've never herd of it

Strela doesn't make a muzzle device threaded in 26mm.

Hey guys appreciate all the advice I just ordered the cnc 4 piece.... if it was any other device I'd do a post when I got it and shot it when it's dark but everyone seems to already know that these things work as good as they can

Good choice on the 4 piece. Even though it was designed as a booster, and flash hiding is merely an unintended consequence of that design, it is THE BEST FLASH HIDER available on the market.

A real deal Bulgarian gets extra points for hard chrome lining on the entire interior.

Have a PWS CQB74 incoming. Didn't see too many reviews, found a decent deal.

Anyone shoot one next to a 4 piece? Thinking the Strela would have been a better deal based on cost alone.

Cool man yeah I just seen a lot more reviews and video evidence of the the 4 piece being shot on short barrels then the strella and the 4 piece is bigger then I'd like it to be on the end of a gun t hats supposed to be short and from the pics I found the strella seems a decent bit longer to me

The Bulgy 4-piece (now matter who clones/adapts it is the cat's meow of flash hiders and (sometimes needed) booster, which means you have to regularly clean it from carbon build-up. It's heavy but it's not the best brake...

Can anyone talk to this part:
http://www.desertfoxoutfitters.com/c...roducts_id=562

Is there is reason its half price? Like its an airsoft part or what?

I finally mounted the PWS but have not shot it. Its really nice (for $150!!!) but I guess I would rather have a more authentic muzzle device so I'm gonna post it for sale at some point.

Doubt it`d be an airsoft part. Not like airsofters have much flash to hide if at all.

Another vote for bulgy 4-piece. It kills flash from a short barrel and it looks right. It also directs sound and blast downrange making it easier on you and your fellow shooters.

I used my M92 sbr with a bulgy in a rifle class and the guy shooting next to me commented he was surprised it wasn't loud. But when shooting from urban prone on AZ dirt it really kicks up a dust storm in front. Makes it hard to see for follow-up shots.
